Soomaa National Park was established in 1993 to protect untouched bogs, biologically diverse glades, wooded meadows, and a variety of forests. Its diverse nature, a unique suspension bridge, distinctive skiff culture, and five seasons have made it a very popular destination.
A visitor centre has been established in Tõramaa, at the place where old roads used to cross. There, visitors can inquire information about the hiking trails and local services, as well as visit the permanent exhibition.
The most popular sights in the national park are the Riisa and Kuuraniidu nature study trails, the Ingatsi boardwalk leading to the height of 8 metres on the highest bog in Europe, as well as watchtowers, and suspension bridges.
